Hot off the escape from the Iron empire our heroes find themselves in a new land altogether. After entering the city of the Blackwolf Citadel some of our party entered themselves into a light-hearted drinking contest, while the others sat by and laughed as they failed. To make up for his failure Angus started playing dice games which was Nimdioc's idea, Dipple... went to sleep which was Sheik's idea, and Thoradin got in a fight. After a few rounds of bets Nimdioc, Angus, and Convel followed Thoradin to the Fists Gold where he single-handedly beat a stone giant while remaining completely unscathed. The arena paid out big for himself and his party, but as they made their way back to the inn where their friends lay waiting for them, they noticed some odd soldiers in red armor. Each adorned with a red gemstone over their left eye, a reminder of an old "friend" of theirs, one whom they are finding themselves increasingly at odds against.
